False Events When Using A SEL 2020/2030 and ION Enterprise

Goals and Symptoms

Summary

SEL 2030 devices are used to communicate with Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories (SEL) relays. The relays only communicate with SEL proprietary protocol. The 2030 can convert this to Modbus for the use of PRODUCTS such as ION Enterprise 5.0.
We use the name SEL 2030 but this article also applies to other modules in this product family including the SEL 2020 and SEL 2032.

ION Enterprise 5.0 is configured to translate the Modbus data into the ION network. Within this network a Virtual ION Processor (VIP) can be used to perform logical actions based on the information obtained from the relay.

One common action is to detect a change in state of a Boolean value. A series of VIP Setpoint modules can be configured to monitor the state of each value.  When the state changes the VIP Setpoint module records an event but can also be used to trigger an action.

Symptoms

The VIP Setpoint module shows repeated events without an actual change in the relay state.  This may always appear as an OFF event.

Causes and Fixes

Cause

The ION Enterprise Modbus master repeatedly asks the SEL 2030 for updates.  If the SEL 2030 is providing the data directly from the port which the relay is attached to (as opposed to the port the master is attached to) then the SEL 2030 will randomly reply with Modbus exceptions. These happen when the incoming request happens at the same time as the relay is updating its information in the SEL 2030.

These Modbus exceptions may cause a VIP Setpoint module to incorrectly register an event.

Workaround

There are two ways to work around this problem.

On newer SEL 2030 devices the master port can be configured to not send exceptions when it is busy. In the port set-up configure the "BUSY_DIS" setting to "Yes" from the default "No"

On all SEL 2030 devices you can use Memory Move commands to remap the individual relay's data into the memory used by the Modbus master.

Can SQL 2012 be used with Power Monitoring Expert (PME) 7.2 or PME 7.2.2?

Issue: 
A user would like to know what versions of SQL server are supported by PME 7.2.x

Product line:
Power Monitoring Expert 7.2.x

Environment:
PME 7.2.x SQL Server Support

Cause:
A user wants to know if SQL 2012 Standard, Enterprise or Express is compatible with PME. In addition, user wants to know if SQL 2012 SP2 (service pack 2) Standard, Enterprise or Express is compatible with PME 7.2.2. 

Resolution: 
Power Monitoring Expert (PME) 7.2
- SQL 2012 is not supported on standalone system (i.e. PME and SQL 2012 are on same server)
- SQL 2012 may be used with Power Monitoring Expert (PME) 7.2 only if it is a distributed system (i.e. PME is on one server and SQL 2012 is on a different server).
- SQL 2012 Standard or Enterprise are supported but not express. The installation procedure will be the same as SQL 2008 R2 in the Power Monitoring Expert 7.2 Installation Guide
- Please review the "What's new in PME7.2" PowerPoint attached along the article.

Power Monitoring Expert (PME) 7.2.2
- Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard and Enterprise versions, and SQL Server 2012 Standard/Enterprise SP1 editions are now supported on standalone and distributed system. SQL Server 2012 Express SP1 Edition is only supported on standalone system. 
- Please review the "What's new in PME 7.2.2" document attached along the article for more information.

SQL 2012 standard/enterprise is supported with PME 7.2.2; however, there are couple things to know before updating the SQL 2012 to SP2.
Case 1: If customer has installed the PME 7.2.2 and currently has SQL 2012 SP1, then they can just upgrade their SQL to SP2 and there will no problem.

Case 2: If the customer doesn't have PME 7.2.2 installed yet then they will have to follow one of two scenarios listed below:
        a) Scenario 1: Customer can install SQL 2012 standard with SP1 and run the PME 7.2.2 installer. Once, PME 7.2.2 installer runs successfully, then upgrade the SQL 2012 to SP2.
        b) Scenario 2: If customer upgrades the SQL 2012 standard to SP2 then they will have to configure the broker files which will bypass checking the SQL version and PME 7.2.2 installer will not error it out.
            (NOTE: If the broker files are not configured and customer tries to run PME 7.2.2 installer with SQL 2012 SP2, then PME 7.2.2 installer will give you error.)
             For instructions on modifying the broker file, please follow the steps outlined in the knowledge base article FA233769
As a result, SQL 2012 SP2 is supported but make sure the process is followed correctly when upgrading the SQL 2012 to Service Pack 2.

Setting up a Write_VAR function block in a M340 to write to SDOs in a CAN device.

Goals and Symptoms

M340, CANopen, Write_Var

Causes and Fixes


First your project Configuration and double click on the CAN port to configure it



Configure the CAN port as needed for your application and notice the Channel # of the CAN port (Channel 2)
Note: The Inputs & Outputs configured here are for PDOs not SDOs.



Next open the CANopen Network from the Configuration. Double click on the Node to add a CAN device.



From the available list chose the CAN device you will be using and press OK.
For this example we are using a Altivar 71 drive.



A picture of the device will appear on the network. Double click in the Node box to adjust the Node ID of the device.
Then double click on the device for its configuration.



Configure the CAN Device as needed.
Note: PDOs are memory mapped directly to memory locations within the M340 SDOs are not.



Next open the Project Settings and configure them so that you can directly address arrays in your program.
This step is optional however if you do not do this you will need to declare variables as array's in you program.



Next open you program section and add a ADDM block (for addressing the CAN device) and a
Read_Var block.

The ADDM block for CAN has an input syntax of r.m.c.e (rack.module.channel.equipment) and is
entered as a string so a ' is needed before and after the string. The OUT pin is connected directly to the
ADR pin of the Read_Var.

The remaining parameters of the WRITE_VAR are configured as follow:

OBJ (object type we are reading, string input)
NUM (location in the CAN device we are reading from. Subindex_index for CAN)
NB (length of read in words)
EMIS (location array in the M340 where the information to be written is stored)
GEST (Array of 4 INTs used for the Write Manager Exchange)

In this Example we are writing a value from %MW110 of the M340 to the ACC Acceleration
at Subindex 0002 (hex) and Index 2032 (hex) in the Altivar drive.

Before you can download this to you PLC there is one additional step required.
For CANopen writes to SDOs from a Write_Var block a timeout value and transmission length
need to be configured in the Write Manager Exchange array.

Open the Variable Declaration editor declare variables for the 4 INTs in the Write Manager Exchange array.
The third and fourth INTs are for the timeout value (in tenths of a second) and the transmission length (in Bytes).

In our example we are writing 1 word so the length is 2 bytes.



Finally Build/Download your project and Run the PLC.

Why does "PowerChute Business Edition Server/ Console Stopped working" error message displays on installing version 9.0.1 Server and Console on Windows 2012 Server Core?

Issue:
"PowerChute Business Edition Server/ Console Stopped working" error message displays on installing v9.0.1 Server and Console on Windows 2012 Server Core.

Product Line:
PowerChute Business Edition (PCBE) version 9.0.1

Environment:
Microsoft Windows 2012 Server Core

Cause:
PowerChute Server and Console are not supported on Server Core.

Solution:
This is the expected behavior on v9.0.1. By default PowerChute Server and Console are not supported on Server Core. But on Windows 2012 Server Core, their installation is not blocked and they install successfully. After installation, the Server/ Console service is stopped as expected. This does not corrupt any data.

Note: The issue will be  fixed in PCBE version 9.1. This will not allow PowerChute Server and Console to install on a Windows 2012 Server Core machine.

ION Meters: DST settings cannot go beyond 03:14:07 UTC on 19 January 2038

Issue    
Need to program the daylight saving timing but cannot go beyond January 19 2038.


Product Line
ION meters

Environment
ION Setup v3.0

Cause
The Year 2038 problem relates to representing time in many digital systems as the number of seconds passed since 1 January 1970 and storing it as a signed 32-bit binary integer. Such implementations cannot encode times after 03:14:07 UTC on 19 January 2038.  Therefore, a problem will arise while configuring DST schedule for the ION meters with the start year 2019 and end year 2038, the user will not be able to set the start and end dates beyond 03:14:07 UTC on 19 January 2038.

Resolution
As of now, the only solution is to use an updated version of ION Setup software. The latest version of ION Setup can be downloaded from the following link FA212816

Once the user has the latest ION Setup installed,  it will allow configuring DST schedule for ION meters beyond 03:14:07 UTC on 19 January 2038.
  1. Go to Setup Assistant-->Clock Settings-->Timezone (click edit)--> Check "Update daylight saving dates starting" and select 2019, click OK
  2. Now check the DST settings tab for schedule. Schedule now starts from 2019 and ends in 2038
  3. If there are no overlaps user will be able to save changes else check for overlaps in the schedule
  4. Once overlaps are removed/edited, changes can be saved successfully
  

Performance Effects of 10Mb/s vs. 100 Mb/s on Ethernet cable from a NOE Module to the Switch

Goals and Symptoms

This document will outline factors related to performance including, PLC CPU scan time, Modbus data types and Ethernet Line bandwidth. It will become apparent that in an automation network the speed of the wire is not the hindering factor when it comes to performance.

Facts and Changes

Quantum Platform, SCADA system, 10/100 MB Ethernet cables, Unity Pro, Concept, Proworx NxT, Proworx 32

Causes and Fixes

The number of Modbus requests serviced by the NOE module will vary by the NOE module Exec version and the CPU that it is attached to. But in a maximum case the module can service 12 Modbus requests per PLC scan.
In the example below, we calculate the time it takes to send 1 Modbus query to read 100 holding registers (4x) and receive 1 Modbus response to that query on a 10 Mbs Ethernet link.

As a reminder, in this resolution the actual Ethernet cables speed is
At 10 Mb/s transfer rate it can carry 10 * 1,000,000 = 10,000,000 bits/second
At 100 Mb/s data transfer rate, it can carry 100 * 1,000,000 = 100,000,000 bits/second


Modbus query of reading 100 4x holding registers is 82 bytes
MAC 18 bytes (6 Destination MAC, 6 Source MAC, 2 Ether type, 4 FCS)
IP Header 20 bytes
TCP Header 20 bytes
MB Header 7 bytes (2 XID, 2 Protocol version, 2 length, 1 unit ID,)
MB PDU 5 bytes (1 byte function code, 2 start reference, 2 no of words to read)
IPG 12 bytes
Query Total 82 bytes
656 bits of data

On a 10 Mb/s link 656 bits/10,000,000 bits/s = 0.0656 ms
On a 100 Mb/s link 656 bits/100,000,000 bits/s = 0.00656 ms

Sending 12 of such messages on a 10 Mb/s link will only take about 0.7872 ms and the same message sent on a 100 Mb link will take 0.07872 ms. As you can see the time difference is insignificant when compared to the actual CPU scan.

Modbus response to that query is 279 bytes
MAC 18 bytes (6 Destination MAC, 6 Source MAC, 2 Ether type, 4 FCS)
IP 20 bytes
TCP 20 bytes
MB Header 7 bytes (2 XID, 2 Protocol version, 2 length, 1 unit ID,)
MB PDU 202 bytes (1 function code, 1 byte count, 100 words response data)
IPG 12 bytes
Response Total 279 bytes
2232 bits

On a 10 Mb/s link 2232 bits/10,000,000 = 0.2232 ms
On a 100 Mb/s link 2232 bits/100,000,000 = 0.02232 ms

Note: Message size does have bearing on overall transmission time and it takes longer to transmit the response than to send a query.

Sending 12 of such message on a 10 Mb/s link will take 2.6784 ms and the same message sent on a 100 Mb/s link will take 0.26784 ms.

For an average CPU you will have a 35 ms scan time. Therefore any delay to link speed being either 10 MB or 100 MB is reasonably insignificant compare to CPU scan.

Application Example for Network utilization:

In this example the CPU is executing 10 Modbus Query/Response transactions as outlined above to simulate IO Scanning 100 registers at a 100ms Repetition Rate.

0.000656 % TX Load @ 10 Mbs
0.002232 % RX Load @ 10 Mbs

0.0000656 % TX Load @ 100 Mbs
0.0002232 % RX Load @ 100 Mbs

The link speed comparison is insignificant on Application Response Time compared to other factors:

o CPU scan
o Datatypes requested (4x register vs. none 4x)
o Half duplex operation
o Slave device response time delay

Note: Half duplex can be a significant factor at either 10 or 100 Mb/s due to collisions which will result in communication delays. Typically devices operating at 10 Mb are usually operating at half duplex and therefore subject to collision.



I/O Scanner
I/O Scanner messages are serviced at the end of CPU scan. Each IO Scanner entry requires 0.3 ms to process. IO Scanners response time also depends on the response time of the remote device being IO Scanned.

For example one I/O scanner entry that reads/writes 10 words (~115 bytes or 920 bits) takes approximately 0.092 ms to send on 10 Mbs link, versus 0.0092 ms to process on a 100 Mbs link. The actual time difference related to the connection speed in this example is less than 1 millisecond at 0.0828 ms.

In summary the CPU scan and remote devices response time have more impact on I/O Scanner response time than the link speed. Regardless of the link speed the difference is minute.

Will my 140 EHC 202 00 maintain count values after a power failure?

No. The count values are not retentative. When the 140 EHC 202 00 experiences a power failure it will reset the counter registers. You may want to store the counter value in a different register so that it can be retrieved /restored in the event of a power failure or planned outage. T.

STBAVO1250 Byte Reversal in a Profibus Island Fixed in Exec v2.02

Goals and Symptoms

If a Profibus master and STBNDP2212 island were power cycled simultaneously, when communication resumed, the output channel upper and lower bytes sent to an STBAVO1250 would occasionally be swapped. After the described power cycle was done, 3200 Hex sent to the Profibus island could result in 0032 Hex being written to an AVO output channel register. Another power cycle cleared the error and resulted in the bytes being written correctly.

Facts and Changes

No other output modules appeared to be affected. Powering the units separately did not appear to cause the problem to occur.

Causes and Fixes

The issue has been addressed with new executive software for the STBNDP2212. Those NIMs loaded with v2.02 executive software will not display the problem.
Production modules loaded with the exec are marked SV: 02.02 and PV:08.

The web accessed exec file name is ai_nim_ndp_02_02.bin.

The problem had been observed when a Siemens S7315-2DP w/2.00 firmware was used for the head. Other head configurations had not been observed to cause the problem. However, due to the intermittent nature of the problem, users were cautioned to not power cycle Profibus heads and associated STB islands at the same time.

This resolution replaces an earlier version that described the problem and indicated a fix was being investigated.

"The port is in use or an attempt was made to access a socket in a way forbidden by its access permissions." when starting PowerLogic SCADA Runtime

Goals and Symptoms

The following error message appears in PowerLogic SCADA (PLS) v7.10 after starting Runtime:
Cannot Open Server <ServerName>. The port is in use or an attempt was made to access a socket in a way forbidden by its access permissions.

As a result, the IO Server will not start.

Causes and Fixes

The default port used by the I/O Server is 2078. The above issue can be resolved by assigning a different port to the IO Server in the Servers > I/O Server field in the Project Editor.



For a complete list of default ports used in PLS, refer to the System Integrator Manual (search for 'default port'). Here are a few:

2075 Reports server communications
2076 Alarm server communications
2077 Trends server communications
2078 Legacy I/O communications
2082 Publish subscribe I/O server communications

To determine which ports are already in use, open a Command Prompt window and run the command 'netstat -a'. This will list all of the TCP port numbers currently in use in the system.

For additional information, refer to RESL197082.

What is alarm 47 on the Series 2000 Circuit Monitor (CM2000)?

Issue:
A CM2000 series circuit monitor is displaying alarm code 47 on the front display.

Product Line:
CM2000 Series Circuit Monitor

Environment:
Onboard Alarms

Cause:
Alarm code 47 is defined as "Suspended Sag/Swell". The alarm is to identify an excessive number of Sag/Swell events being generated on the meter.

An "excessive number" of Sag/Swell events is defined as:
More than 48 events total from all Sag/Swell Alarms in any 500ms period, or more than 6 events from any single Sag/Swell Alarm in any 500ms period.

Alarm code 47 is active when event 47 is true which occurs when register 2038 on the meter is not equal to zero.  If the user disables alarm 47 without clearing Register 2038, the alarm will immediately be re-enabled and asserted as true.

Resolution:
To clear alarm 47, write a 0 to register 2038.

To learn how to read and write registers using the front panel of the CM2000 series meter, please refer to KB article FA211912
To learn about other CM2000 alarm codes, please refer to the KB article FA218966.

Why does ATS48 not operate when wired like the recommended diagram on page 74 of the June 2002 manual?

The user's manual recommended diagram on page 74 is incorrect for proper operation.  
On line 2 of the ladder diagram after fault relay R1A to R1C connection the coil that is labeled TR for trip relay should be a FR coil for fault relay.
Then should add a line after this that has a NC (normally closed ) FR ( fault relay ) contact in series with a TR ( trip relay ) coil.

This configuration would then allow proper operation of unit.
